St. Philomena is prayed to by people of diverse ages, culture and social standing around the world. The young virgin who was martyred at age 13, willingly traded her earthly life for heavenly salvation and continues her work today promoting the virtues of purity and sanctity among the world’s youth and bringing the faithful closer to our Blessed Mother and Jesus Christ. It would seem she was held in quiet reserve by God for nearly seventeen centuries and summoned at a time when so much uncertainty and absence of faith abound.
“Whatever you ask from her, She will obtain for you.” – Pope Gregory XVI Credited with countless miracles and intercessions since discovery of her tomb in the most ancient catacombs of St. Priscilla in Rome in 1802.
The Chaplet in Honour of Saint Philomena
This devotion is owed to the Holy Curé of Ars. The chaplet, also known as Rosary or Little Crown of St. Philomena, is made up of red beads to signify Her martyrdom and white beads a token of Her Virginity and Purity.
On the St. Philomena Medal pray:
The Apostle’s Creed – to ask for the grace of Faith.
Three Our Fathers on each of the white beads to thank the Blessed Trinity for the gifts given to the Holy Virgin,
for in whose honour, laid down Her life.
1st White Bead pray:
The Our Father – in honor of The Father
2nd White Bead pray:
The Our Father – in honor of The Son
3rd White Bead pray:
The Our Father – in honor of The Holy Spirit
On each Red Bead pray:
Hail, O holy Saint Philomena, my dear patroness.
As my advocate with thy Divine Spouse, intercede for me now and at the hour of my death.
Saint Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
The Chaplet ends with the invocation:
Hail, O innocent Philomena, who, for love of Jesus,
preserved the lily of thy virginity in all its brightness.
Hail, O illustrious Philomena, who shed thy blood so courageously for Jesus Christ.
I bless the Lord for all the graces He granted thee during thy lifetime,
and most especially at the hour of thy death.
I praise Him and glorify Him for the honor and power
with which He has crowned thee, and I beseech thee
to obtain for me from God the graces I request through thy intercession.
Saint Philomena, beloved daughter of Jesus and Mary,
pray for us who have recourse to thee!
